Surprise, surprise. The D.C. Attorney General has cut a sweetheart deal with far-left Democrat Congressman Jamaal Bowman after he pulled a fire alarm in the Cannon House Office Building in an apparent effort to delay a House vote. Committee on House Administration Chairman Bryan Steil joined Fox Business to discuss the bizarre series of events during and after Bowman's stunt.Read more
The heat is being turned up against soft-on-crime, rogue prosecutors after two of the most prominent figures in the movement have been forced to resign in recent weeks. Notoriously bad St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner left office abruptly in May:
Gardner, a Democrat, had been facing an ouster effort by Missouri’s attorney general and was under scrutiny from Republican-led state lawmakers when she announced May 4 that she would resign, effective June 1. But on Tuesday, Gardner announced the end of her tenure. . .Read more
Our condolences to the family of C. Boyden Gray on his passing. He was a friend to the conservative legal movement and a defender of the rule of law. Ambassador Boyden Gray spoke at the RNLA National Policy Conference often, most recently in 2021. But we remember him best as the 2008 recipient of the Hon. Edwin Meese III Award and for giving the keynote address at our 2008 National Policy Conference. (Pictured below with fellow Meese Award winner Dick Wiley.)
With less than two weeks until Election Day, candidates are taking to the debate stage to face off on the issues. Last night, it did not go well for them. Blatant lies, misrepresentations, and even casual dismissals of the voters concerns were part of three Democrat candidates' playbook.
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer was the classic example of this. While debating Republican candidate Tudor Dixon on Tuesday night, Whitmer claimed that schools were only closed for 3 months as a result of the COVID pandemic.Read more
There is no greater example of the breakdown of law and order under the Biden administration than the crisis on our southern border. According to a report by CNN, the crisis is the deadliest it's ever been, with a record number of migrants who've died crossing the border during the last fiscal year:
Nearly 750 migrants have died at the southern border this fiscal year, a record that surpasses last year's total by more than 200 people, according to Department of Homeland Security figures shared with CNN. . .Read more
The breakdown of law and order on our southern border with Mexico has reached new heights with over 2 million migrant encounters in fiscal year 2022 alone:
The number of migrant encounters at the southern border this fiscal year has now exceeded two million, sources tell Fox News — a number that marks a new record, as well as a glaring sign of the enormous and ongoing crisis facing agents, officials and communities at the border.Read more
They went after Paul Clement for winning a Supreme Court case. The left has gone after the families of Supreme Court Justices and today the left went after Republican lawyers for representing their clients. RNLA released the following statement:
The latest attacks on lawyers by The 65 Project are part of a broader effort to intimidate lawyers and law firms to prevent them from serving Republican, conservative, and libertarian clients. Liberals in the legal profession even recently forced premier Supreme Court advocate Paul Clement to choose between loyalty to his client, as required by the ethical rules of every jurisdiction, and continued employment at his law firm; he chose loyalty to his client. But such a choice should not be required. Lawyers have a duty to uphold the high ethical and moral standards of the legal profession and ensure that everyone receives zealous representation, from Guantanamo Bay detainees to pro-life advocacy organizations and everyone in between. This disturbing pattern of intimidation by liberal activists and their sympathizers must stop.Read more
Article VI, Clause 3 of the U.S. Constitution states: “no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.” Yet H.R.1, nicknamed the "Corrupt Politicians Act," clearly states (emphasis added):
An individual is eligible to serve as a member of an independent redistricting commission if the individual meets each of the following criteria: . . .
(iv) The reason or reasons the individual desires to serve on the independent redistricting commission, the individual’s qualifications, and information relevant to the ability of the individual to be fair and impartial, including, but not limited to— (I) any involvement with, or financial support of, professional, social, political, religious, or community organizations or causes;Read more
Although in the past President Biden described court-packing as a “bonehead idea," he and his liberal allies are now calling for this complete power grab.
Six out of the nine SCOTUS justices were appointed by Republicans; therefore, Democrats want to add more seats, so they can outnumber conservatives. They are shamelessly attempting to change the rules to get what they want.Read more
Alan Dershowitz, the long-time Harvard Professor and constitutional scholar who defended former President Trump during his first impeachment trial, published an opinion in the Wall Street Journal titled No, You Can't Impeach a Former President. In this opinion, Dershowitz argues that Trump's upcoming Senate impeachment trial must be dismissed because the Senate no longer has jurisdiction to convict Trump since he is no longer the president.Read more
